The play tells the story of Asian activist and playwright D.H.H. (based on Hwang himself) who mistakenly casts a non-Asian actor in an Asian role in his new play. The cast will also include Thomas Azar, Tina Chilip, Robert Ernst, Amy Resnick, and Howard Swain.
Bandhu, who will portray D.H.H., has appeared in plays such as Far East and The Bells, and is a Tony-winning producer of shows such as Spring Awakening and Glengarry Glen Ross.
